Small Businesses Hiring Problem and the Solution

When it comes to hiring, small businesses face lots of challenges. The first challenge is time; it’s in short supply. Developing job descriptions, sourcing candidates and interviewing prospects takes time for everyone in the organization. Secondly, it’s expensive. Recruiters generally charge a steep % of the starting salary and if you do it on your own, you’ve got the costs of yours and your team’s time. That costs on two ends; you lose the actual monetary cost of somebody’s time, but there is also a cost in lost productivity. The last challenge is finding the right fit. The interview process is much like a beauty pageant, everyone is on their best behavior and presenting themselves to impress. It’s real easy to get blinded and end up making the wrong hire. Also, most organizations don’t have a good sense of themselves philosophies and the values that comprise a company’s culture aren’t always understood.
